Are you Cagesiders willing to make Saturday Morning Slam a part of your balanced breakfast?WWE Saturday Morning Slam returned yesterday (Nov. 10) to talk about some of the big men of the WWE. Our focus was on the giants of professional wrestling this week. In that theme, The Great Khali took on Primo in the main event of the morning. Also, we had Titus O'Neil in action, as The Prime Time Players took on The Usos.
And, in a nice touch, John Cena delivered a special message to the troops in celebration of Veteran's Day.
Now that we have that out of the way, let's move into some reactions.
- The Great Khali took on Primo in the main event of the show. Not much to really spend time on here, as Khali was able to best Primo, even though he had a little help from Epico. It is a legitimate concern to see Khali step in the ring. At one time, he could have been a solid character wrestler, play the unstoppable monster. That ship sailed before he even set foot into WWE and his knees were on board that vessel. The guy can't walk and looks like he dislocates his knees just walking. Collect a nice retirement check and go enjoy your celebrity status in India, Khali. Do it for all of us, and for yourself.
- The Prime Time Players took on The Usos in the opening bout. While it makes no sense, The Usos picked up the victory. The only way I could see this being justified is because the good guys need to win on this show. Who knows? And, honestly, who cares, since it is on a kids show?
- John Cena delivered a message to the troops. We harp on this all the time, but it still deserves repeating here: Cena is a decent worker who has adopted the most grating character in WWE history, but regardless of opinion on skill in the ring or on the mic, he is an absolute marketing gem. He may not be the sterling person whom WWE portrays, but even with his flaws, Cena seems like a guy who will go out of his way to promote good causes for his company. Good on you, Cena.
- Our "Video Vault" feature focused on giants in the WWE. The emphasis was placed on André the Giant and Big Show, obviously. These packages do their part in teaching children the history of wrestling beyond Santino Marella and John Cena, so I'll take it.This week's episode earns a "C." I seriously can't give a Great Khali main-evented show anything too positive. However, it still passes and was worth a quick glance.
